Re: Updated FireFox

Thanks Gene, and I'm sure you're right; but:
Used to be that when I started firefox, it displayed a whole page of Google (because google was set to be my start page).  Everything pertaining to google; all the google links, the edit box for searching, the search button, ETC.  After all my updating, reverting et al, starting firefox just gives me about four items that I can tab through.  No edit box, and my NVDA does no longer go into edit mode allowing me to input my search criteria.

I'm sure there must be something in the firefox setup that will let me have my old screens back; but I just can't find it.

I wonder if there's a tutorial that will show me how to set this up the way it was?  I know I should google it, but I can't get there.

Appreciate your suggestions.

OK; I did it.  Updated my firefox.  It says it's now version 84.0.2 (I
think it is).  It does not act anything like before the update. Screen
seems totally different.  I think I'll have to revert.  This is exactly
why I did not want to update.
